Shrek 2: an equal sequel
Sunday, May 23, 2004
Well, not so much a 'review' as a testament that Rachel and I saw it last night and thought it was really good. Naturally, it's not the same kind of movie as the original (sequels so seldom are), but it's good in a different way. Strike out character development and use the saved time for more cameo in-jokes and oblique (and overt) movie, cultural, and fairy tale references.

The movie never lets the audience rest, but in a telling example, Rachel and I want to go see it again after a few weeks because we lost several lines because the audience was laughing too hard.

The soundtrack is also great. Any animated piece that has both "I need a hero" (sung by a fairy godmother) and "Funkytown" has gotta be worth a look-see.

Anyhow, today we're off to North Beach (San Francisco) with Ali and Mark to see if we can take so many pictures that we have to use my new Belkin iPod media adapter to drain the 1 gig card and fill it up again.

After that, we're all going to see Dido in concert at Berkeley High School. It should be a pretty full day.

If you like it, please share it.
